A pair of adult bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) have been nesting on Staten Island. In 2017, they had two eaglets, whom I filmed with their parents over six days in August and September. In 2018, they also had two eaglets, who were a little harder to spot than the 2017 offspring.
The eagle in this slideshow was seen on the utility tower at Mt. Loretto Unique Area, Staten Island, on April 2, 2019.
I filmed the eagles over six days in 2017: Aug. 11, 20, 24, 25, 27 and Sept. 1, almost all shots taken at or near Mount Loretto Unique Area. The music includes Enchanted Valley by Kevin MacLeod (obtained from YouTube Audio Library) and Bassoon Concerto in C major and Bassoon Concerto in F major by Antonín Reichenauer, and Bassoon Concerto in F major by František Jiránek, performed by Robert Rønnes (obtained from MusOpen.org, a royalty-free music source).
